Assembly:

Using the crochet cushion front as a template, cut and sew a round cushion using the fabric and stuff with the polyester fiberfill.

With wrong sides facing, join the crochet cushion front and back with a sc through both pieces into every st until you reach the halfway point. Insert the fabric cushion and continue sc to the end.

Sl st to join the round and weave in any ends.

Pompom Edging

Leaving a long tail for finishing, join with a sl st anywhere along the sc edge of the assembled cushion.
